Two Goats

One day a goat was crossing a bridge built over a river. The bridge was very narrow and at a time only one person / animal could walk on it.

When the goat was at the half way of the bridge, she saw another goat was coming from the opposite side of the bridge.

The first goat asked the second goat to go back and give place to cross the bridge. The second goat also asked the same to the first goat.

Both the goats were adamant, and were not ready to go back and give place to each other.

They quarrelled for some time, and then they started fighting with their horn. And at last they both fell down from the bridge and drowned into the river.


Later that day, one more goat was crossing the same bridge, when she was at half way of the bridge; she found another goat was coming from opposite side of the bridge.

At first both the goats asked each other to go back and give place to the other to cross the bridge. But none of them agreed.

The first goat thought for a moment and said “let us try some other way, I will lie down on the bridge and you can safely walk over me and can go to the other side”. The second goat agreed to the first goat.

When the first goat lay down on the bridge, the second goat quickly walked over the first goat and went towards the other side of the bridge. Then the first goat got up and went to the opposite end of the bridge. And by this way they both crossed the river safely.

Kanha- My Friend


Once upon a time, a poor boy named Hari was living in a village with his mother. Hari and his mother were poor, but they always helped those who were in need.

Hari was very good in his studies. But there was no any school in his village. So every day Hari had to cross a dense forest to reach another village’s school. Lots of wild animals like lion, tiger, bear, and fox were living in that forest.

Hari was scared to cross the forest, but he wanted to study, so every day he was going through the forest.

One day, Hari told his mother, that he is very scared to cross the forest, his mother told him, that “God lives in the forest, if you call him with true heart then he will come to help you”.

Next day when Hari reach the forest, he closed his eyes and called “Kanha, O’ Kanha; where are you? I am very scared in this dense forest, please come and help me”.

At that moment, a small boy came running towards Hari. The Boy told Hari that “His name is Kanha, and he has come to help him.”

Now every day, Kanha come to help Hari to cross the forest.

One day “Hari’s teacher asked all the kids, to bring something (like sweets, snacks, food, gifts etc.) from their home to celebrate the annual day of the school.

Hari knew that his mother work hard to arrange food and school fee. They don’t have money to buy snacks, sweets or gifts.

Next day, Hari got ready for his school, but he was sad.

When he met kanha on his way; he told kanha that “his teacher asked to bring something to celebrate the annual day, but as he is very poor, he doesn’t have anything “.

Kanha said; I have lots of cows, I can give you a glass of milk, and then he gave a glass of milk to Hari.

Hari was very happy to get a glass of milk. He rushed to the school. When he reached, he saw there were lots of delicious sweets, snacks and gifts. His teacher was very busy in organising all the things.

When Hari’s friends saw his small glass of milk, they laughed on him. Hari offered the milk to his teacher, but he ignored him.

Later his teacher took the glass angrily and poured it to another bowl. The bowl got full with the milk, and the Hari’s glass was also full.

Teacher took another empty container and poured the milk from the glass. This time also the container got filled with milk, but still Hari’s glass was full.

Hari’s teacher keeps on transferring milk to different containers, but every time Hari’s glass was full of milk.

Now all the containers in the school were full of milk. All the teachers and students were surprised to see that.

Teacher asked Hari,” From where did you get this glass of Milk”?

Hari narrated the whole incident. His teacher was shocked to hear Hari’s story, he asked Hari if they can meet his friend.

Hari said that whenever he calls his friend, he comes immediately. Hari closed his eyes and then he called “Kanha! Kanha!

Kanha came immediately. But nobody was able to see him except Hari. His teachers and friends could only hear his voice.

Kanha told everyone, that he helped Hari, because he is a good and honest boy. And god always helps those, who help others.

Hari’s teacher and friends apologies and they promised to become a good human being.

Hari was very happy to have kanha as a friend and he promised that he will share the glass of milk with other needy people.

Once upon a time, a hare was roaming near a lake in a forest. He saw a Tortoise walking slowly with a shell on his back. Hare laughed at tortoise and said “Oh you slow creature, you are very dull and you take so long to cover a small distance”. I can run to the other side of the lake in a very short time. The hare was very proud of himself.

Tortoise felt bad and he asked the hare for a race competition. The hare agreed and on a selected day, they both gathered for the race. Other animals also gathered to watch the race. Monkey was the referee. He explained to both of them that before the sunset they have to reach to the other side of the forest.

Race started with the bang of noise.

In a few minutes, hare was out of sight. He ran so fast and reaches to the half way. “What a funny race it is”, he thought to himself.

It was a cold day, the hare thought to take some rest under a warm sunlight.

The tortoise was moving slowly but steadily. He kept of walking without any rest.

When the hare woke up, it was very late, he looked around but he didn’t see the tortoise. He thought that the Tortoise is far behind him.

He ran fast and reached the finishing line.

But when he reached, he was very surprised. All the animals were cheering and congratulating the tortoise who had finished the race much before the hare.

The hare was very ashamed. He went to congratulate the tortoise. The tortoise told him that “Slow but steady wins the race “.
